I battled with the track falling off for over a season. The pool guys said they fixed it. Tried the previous solution to adjust middle wheel but no luck. My solution was to remove the left wheel and the tank (to get to the screws). The wheel mount allows for minor adjustment but it is also reversible. Turn the mount around and this will extend the wheel base much more. Mine ran for several hours after doing this and so far the track stays on.

A big problem with this cleaner is that the screws come loose with vibration. You'll have to disassemble the cleaner to get to the power module, once you have to power module out, remove the endcap and check the screws on the cams that engage the reverse drive mechanisms. The main problem is when the screws come loose, they won't fully engage the reverse drives and will sometimes cause the cleaner to stop while it should be reversing, then continue on forward mode. I guess the best advice I have is to make sure all the screws are tight, but not over-tight as you can pull the threaded inserts out of the plastic.

This could be caused by an overloaded circuit. Make sure that you don't have too much stuff plugged into the outlet and try again.

Here is copy of the users manual for these pool cleaners. It has a detailed diagram of all of the parts that is pretty easy to follow. Find the section that you need to change and you should be able to see how to access it. Hope that helps.

I would first take it out of the water and check for proper wheel RPM. If it is less than 28 RPM or you are getting no movement at all, it is going to be a problem with the power source. It is likely going to be that your booster pump is missing, malfunctioning, or is not installed properly on the pool cleaner. There are a few other things to check. Clean the skimmer, filter and pump basket, clearing any debris that restricts water flow. Check the hoses, connections and swivels for leaks. Try removing the blue restrictor disk from the UWF or if an adjustable gate valve is installed on the booster pump or cleaner line, open it completely so water can flow freely.
